media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, september 11th. just to name some major events. and that debt ceiling debacle did more to disrupt the public's confidence in the integrity of the political process in washington. so you have to make your elected officials accountable. have you social immediate yafment you can build an online community snainsly and you get a message multiplire. by doing that you can find out where your law makers are. are they in session five days a week? they should be working. these are things you can be doing now. these are simple solu
, governor scott issued a statement in which he said that the lieutenant governor had left elected office, left the number two office in the state so that her former association with a certain company would not end up quote distracting from our important work on behalf of florida families. well, the distracts company in question is this. this is the former florida lieutenant governor. and she's appearing in a psa/ad for this distracting company. in the two years proceeding her appearance in the ad, the governor had a pr firm that reported that group was the primary source of income for her firm. the group purports to be a charity for america's military veterans. to help veterans struggling with homelessness. it is led by this man, whose title in the group is national commander. his name is jerry bass. if you'd like to see a more recent picture, we have one here in the form of his mug shot. this was taken last week. her association with him and his supposed veterans charity made her continuing in office as florida's lieutenant governor an untenable prospect. jerry bass was arrested last we
wedding rings and all other parts of straight life. the karl rove winning elections and the abolitionists wing are in for a prolonged situation. 2014 will be tough, but once these two gangs, the palin and rove crowds, have to meet again in 2016, it's not going to be pretty and sure as hell isn't going to be a marriage and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched against -- a decade later, the forces behind with trying to revise that history. today, donald rumsfeld tweeted ten years ago, the long, difficult work of liberating 25 million iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. put aside for the mome
and do what we have always done. what we're going to do is change the fact that when he got elected and other people got elected whether it is in austin or the delegation that has been sent to washington they are not representing half of the people for the people and by the people, and they have done a masterful job of gerrymandering the elections. we have to combat that. we have got to compete everywhere, and we have got to make people fight for those votes. so we'll let rick perry continue to talk and we'll go do our job. >> michael: texas hasn't voted for a democratic president since carter in 1976, a democratic senator since benson in '88. how long will it take? >> your point a good one. we -- democrats have lost the last 100-state-wide elections since 1994, 0 to 100. so we know this is a massive challenge, but we also know there is a ton of energy on the ground there volunteers donors supporters across the state who are ready to have their voices heard. so the context is going to depend on a couple of key factors, and some of that is how fast can we get th
palin suggested that political architects like rove who lost elections in 2012 should get out of the business or run for office themselves. >> the architect can head on back to -- [ applause ] he can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> rove wasted no time going after palin. >> i don't think i'm a particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. second of all, i would say if i did run for office and win i would serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> perhaps alluding to the fact that palin resigned her governorship midway through the first term in office. >>> pope francis completed his first sunday as pontiff with his signature down-to-earth style. he started the day greeting crowds before leaving mass at st. peter's. he then went into the crowd catching his security detail off guard. hundreds of thousands poured into st. peter's square and erupted into cheers when their new pope stepped to the window to give his blessing which he closed with a casual "enjoy your afternoon. enjoy a good lunch." >>> vice president
newspaper this morning -- a story by gina smith for the island. turnout will decide today's election for the first congressional seat in south carolina. gina smith is joining us on the phone this morning. gina smith, tell me about this race. who is running and why? guest: good morning. this is like christmas morning for me. i'm so excited. this is really an exciting race, because 18 republicans, two democrats, an incredibly crowded field but some of the names in this race just make it delicious to watch. we have mark sham ford, the former governor who most of the nation remembers as the guy who slipped out of the country in 2009 so he could visit his mistress, and he -- everyone thought he was hiking the appalachian trail but he was up with a female. so governor sanford is back on his redemption tour, we also family member 's and steven colbert, the comedian, his sister. and a lot of mudslinging which outh carolina is infamous for. host: so sanford is is leading for the primary? guest: yes. it was a comeback story that you thought if it happened it would be five or eight years from n
was going through your mind? >> you know, for me, i'm elected to congress and i take every vote seriously, but the vote to invade a sovereign nation, put our fighting americans at risk and go into this country, it has to be taken very seriously. and i've had several of these votes, of course. but what i look at is this country a threat to our national security. we had the classified briefings. with don rumsfeld and cheney and the whole group. they kept saying we have the weapons of mass destruction. there was a pesky little group of us and we kept saying show us the evidence. show us the evidence. they say, don't worry, we have the evidence. i'm not going to vote to send our fighting men and women into another country and waste all those lives and billions of dollars. just based on frankly on dick cheney's assurance, so i voted no. people did not believe that the white house would lie to them, and so they believed that iraq had these weapons, but they didn't and there was never proof they did. >> was it the fact there was no proof that led to your vote? were you objecting to the rush to j

obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
to encourage him, saying it was his legacy, his historic role to have real elections and turn power over at the end of his term. the other issues, tough issues involved one resolution today, which was the turnover of the bagram from american control to afghan control, a big sticking point with president karzai. i asked both of them about the fact that there are high-value detainees, very dangerous prisoners, that the u.s. considers very dangerous, now turned over to afghan control, did the u.s. have veto power over afghan release of these prisoners? kerry said he was confident that they would have consultations. and that they would not be release of these kinds of prisoners, karzai made it clear that this is matter of afghan sovereignty. he said the u.s. is going to share intelligence, that the military had worked out sharing of information, and that they would be consulting, but obviously there's no american veto any more over whether or not these high-value prisoners, suspected taliban figures will be released. there's a lot of talk about the taliban. mutual agreement that it is a good
winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partner for whom americans feel they have tried so hard to be helpful, how that country can be in fact doing something that makes it more difficult to achieve our common goals? >> reporter: so far however the shiite-dominated malaki government has not closed its airspace to the shiite regime in tehran. follow me on twitter at at james rosen@fnc i will tell you who else from the iraqi government recently got the same message. jon and jenna. jon: james rosen, thank you. we'll have more on secretary kerry's surpris
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
if you have an election like 2012 where there were a lot of things that made you feel like republicans could have won. you have the president who was not very popular. you have very high on a plug. you have a very weak economy. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession in come on it went down $5,000 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won freckly at a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. allowed obamaple to define romney. romney thether than fighting romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say what did we do wrong. the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape certainly -- i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republi
the litmus test is elections. paul ryan was on the national ticket. he basically argued as did mitt romney, on the very well thing that the house republicans just passed. and the voters cast farvotes for more votes for u.s. senate candidate who is were democrats and far more votes for democratic candidates for the house of representatives. so that's the way we resolve these differences in our country, by elections. it was not really a very close call? >> the fiscal issue has not been resolved i. of course, it hasn't been resolved. hold on, mercedes, let's acknowledge what has happened, the deficits have dropped now for 3 straight years at a rate lower -- faster pace than we have seen since the end of world war ii. nobody wants to acknowledge that. but they are coming down because we did have to engage in emergency spenning when the chitanked and we are coming out of that. we have to have balance -- that's good. but what is really good is job creation and a strong economy. we are seeing the effects of austerity. they would trade our economy for theirs in a success. in realtime, as consequen

there since resigning last month citing his age but he's been following francis' election as pope and inauguration before the huge crowds in rome. time for politics. we start with one of my favorite topics. the budget. earlier this morning while you were sleeping the senate passed a budget that came at the end of a marathon session of amendment votes. welcome to both of you this saturday morning. okay. the democrats budget bill passed at 5:00 a.m. 5:00 a.m. and it passed by one single vote. mostly it's symbolic. how big of a deal is this? >> finally we can get on with our lives. no. i think actually in all reality the only thing it really does is take off the table a huge republican talking point that they've had for three years complaining that democrats haven't passed a budget. now it really focuses on the real work ahead which is let's pass something that is real that is based on solutions where both democrats and republicans can come together to figure out how we move forward with the big problems that we're facing and i think that's going to be the real battle, christine. we'
t moving into the next cycle of e elections and announced yesterday he is going to spend $12 million of his own money in the senate races. these are not even senate races. these are in states where he thinks we can get the votes from senators for the gun safety measures that are now in the u.s. senate. so this is the influence of gun safety legislation, including the assault weapons ban that president obama wants out of the senate. on "meet the press" yesterday, michael bloomberg said yeah, it's my own money and i think it's certainly appropriate that this is the way that i spend it. >> if i can do that by spending some money and taking the nra from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, then i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. >> bill: yes, i remember he did won, his candidate, i for get her name right now won that special e ladies and gentlemen to take reverend -- not reverent but jesse jackson, junior's seat in chicago. she didn't have a prayer un
the president was elected. there's no doubt that netanyahu preferred romney over obama in the last election. but the fact of the matter is, the president understands as well as netanyahu that the two of them are facing what essentially is israel's greatest peril in the next year, and that is iran's potential nuclear weaponization. and both countries are tied at the hip inso far as what happens to iran. if iran decides to proceed, well, both israel and the united states might find themselves in a conflict against iran. and so there's got to be a better relationship between these two men. not only with respect to iran, but also with respect to israel's growing challenges on its borders, particularly in lebanon with hezbollah in the south with gaza and egypt and, of course, with syria. the last thing that the united states wants is for netanyahu and the israeli people the belief that the president does not have his back and they would have to act unilaterally without due american consultation with israelis. >> and we know, michael, that the president is going to be going to ramallah to be talk
.s. accomplish in iraq? saddam hussein was removed from power. free elections were held and hundreds, maybe thousands of al qaeda-inspired militants were killed. but the war also created thousands more. iraq didn't become a stable u.s.-friendly democracy, but a shiite-led state with close ties to iran, still at war with itself. a big legacy of the iraq war is that extreme reluctance by the white house to become more involved in other foreign conflicts, especially the one in syria right now. here in jerusalem, the president is expected to arrive tomorrow. syria is just next door. it will be on the agenda as that conflict gets even more violent. today there are reports in syria of a chemical weapons attack. they are still not confirmed. both sides, the rebels and the government are trading accusations. u.s. officials are trying to determine if chemical weapons were even used. if they were, it could be a tipping point and trigger deeper u.s. involvement. brian? >> richard engel in israel prior to the president's arrival there. richard, thanks. >>> now we turn to the vatican. a remarkable scene
and their elected representatives to make marriage policy. we don't need the court striking down marriage laws in all 50 states. >> evan -- go ahead. >> yeah, well, actually, what was just said se completely untrue. in fact, all the evidence that's been now compiled by all the leading public health authorities, the child welfare authorities, groups like the american academy of pediatrics, nation's kids doctors put out another statement in support of freedom to marry. and the experts on child raising all said ending the exclusion from families would strengthen marriage and -- >> that's not what they said. the american academy of pediatrics is a left-leaning activist group issuing statements -- balance the budget and which guns we should ban. another group of pediatrician you men college of pediatrician filed an amicus brief showing evidence that children need a mother and a father. >> hey, guys -- >> professors at harvard and chicago showing the same thing. >> i have to -- hey, guys, one second. i want to bring in here, one of the reasons we keep you around here. speak to some of this here. wha
we are faced with on a day-to-day basis. on a national level we often hear our elected officials talk about creating jobs and building better schools and stronger communities. health is connected to every single one of those. on an individual level health is fundamental to opportunity. if you are -- if you're sick and you can't access the services you need your opportunity is less than disproportionate communities of color and lgbt communities are opportunities have been stifled because of the health disparities in our communities for generations. the affordable care act helps break that and really i think our view is the biggest piece of legislation our country has seen his incredibly exciting. when we talk about prevention this is a 2014 and beyond. it's right now. 71 million people with drive insurance today have access to preventive services without cause sharing requirements and that may not seem like a big deal to people but people with private insurance that 40-dollar co-pay or 20-dollar co-pay, that's $40 for gas or groceries. it's a big deal to me. i think i went to the gynec
, and after the election when mccain said you people are to -- yeah. but in following that story, i mean i found -- probably the most important news story of the year, uk salon owner accused of only hiring fat gay hair stylists. a british hair stylist has filed a discrimination suit claiming he was a sexist because he doesn't want to hire women because they get pregnant. who doesn't have hair stylist fantasy, because they are leaning in -- i have been caught staring a couple of times -- and i have a very pretty hair stylist. >> yeah, i like my hair stylists but don't have a desire to engage with either of them. >> yeah, her name is dossy and she is terrific she is leaning forward, and you are like, i think your boob is on my forearm.

at stake in terms of elections but my gosh. ten years ago if you had thought a republican -- and republican leaders are basically urging politicians to embrace gay marriage, you know, the opposition which has been a cornerstone in the previous decade. suddenly embrace immigration reform and things like that. so you know, i don't think it is being done out of goodwill, honestly. i think is being done out of flip flopping and watching the polls. this is where the tension comes from, ralph reed talking about evangelicals will sit out. if they "embrace" gay marriage and the republican party and things like that. >> stephanie: same with immigration reform, right? they're basically saying we lost on that issue. >> sean hannity 24 hours after the election, he was like oh, forget it. ignore everything i've said for the last seven years. on the one hand, folks on the left can appreciate that they see it is a loser issue and if fox news throws in the towel on immigration hate, if they do, you know, it would make it easier for change to happen. just like oh, forget it. >> stephanie: didn't even bother

in the midst of this fiscal crisis. we need to be different. we can't do it alone. we need the help of elected officials to give certain tea, flexibility and time to make change. if we can get the reforms to pay and compensation and if we get rid of weapons and infrastructure, we can begin to restore versatility of the joint force at an affordable and sustainable costs. as i stand here today, i don't yet know whether or if or how much her defense strategy will change, but i predict it will. we need to elected assumptions and adjusting nations to match abilities and that means doing less not less well. it also means wind and other instruments of power to help underwrite global security. of course he won't do this well if we don't that diplomacy and development with sufficient dollars. partners will have to work with us to collaborate with this on accepting greater share of the risk. some are more ready and willing to do that than others. i have to say the united arab emirates is their most credible and capable ally. our consistent first-line of defense has been and always will be our greatest s

for extra time, cramer. the election, right before you go out on a limb and you're exactly right. can you be exactly right. you're right about that. lasalle? that was because of philly. >> totally. >> but you made a point of saying, lasalle, and they knocked off kansas state and if mississippi can beat wisconsin, did you not think that would be a problem? i have to tell you, i think wichita state better watch out. the offense is real. my mom lived around the block from lasalle so it was a total phone call and it's been years. now you're arguing with my daughter who for some reason is a huge shocker fan. i love the shocker game and you know what? the temple game was fantastic. i said, god, that was a great game and i realized, i liked that a lot more after it was done and i had my head in my hands. and did you watch him make the free throws? >> no. you had a run of ten points at the end and i felt so bad because fran dunphy is 3 and 14 in the nca and boy, these games are everything, joe. did you see what's his name on ohio state? did you see that? >> i'll take that. i need that because ohi
friendship with israel and realized in washington eternal means until the 2014 election. but there are stakes here and to be fair, i think the president has undergonna real mental, perhaps even emotional shift. as we all know he came to office with a chip on his shoulder against israel. he had that chicago reverend wright background where israel is repressors and arabs were good freedom fighters especially the palestinians and heard in the cairo speech, but for the last four years, our president has been trying to deal with the fractious, often truculent arabs and now the palestinians, even though he is going to the west bank to meet with them tomorrow, the palestinians are complaining that he won't pay homage to the tomb of yasser arafat and i think to an extent our president may have finally realized that, yes, israel is our only friend and ally and by the way, the only truly civilized rule of law democracy in the entire region. and with, as he ed henry made clear, with all of these problems converging, syria, iran, perhaps instability growing in jordan, lebanon in danger of another civil w

. >>brian: was there any backlash of the president talking beyond their elected leader, benjamin netanyahu, right to the people, essentially saying tell him to do the right thing? >> i think probably if there was any backlash, the only argument would be turn around, is fair play. benjamin netanyahu talked to a joint session of congress. this is a version of president obama coming here and saying you want to come to the united states and talk to me and tell the americans what you think about israel, i'm going to speak directly to your people and tell you what i think needs to be done. >>steve: yesterday during our program we showed you a live shot of the president of the united states and president of the palestinian authority. we didn't see when you pulled out, look who's over the president of the united states. yasser arafat, also known as the father of modern terrorism peering down over the president. >>anna: this man, throughout history being responsible for hundreds of hijackings, bombings and assassinations. how on earth 2k-9 president not -- how on earth did the president not realize
